Sounds absolutely delicious, though I haven't tried it yet. I added it in here for safe keeping, because I plan to make it as soon as I can get my hands on some berries! Was on a mother's day cooking show with the Micheff Sisters titled "Breakfast with Mom."

- 2 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
- 4 cups apple juice or 4 cups grape juice

I really liked this with our pancakes, although I was the only one that ate it. I only had grape juice on hand, so used that and felt it was plenty sweet. I used a few fresh peach chunks to make up for not having quite enough blueberries. I made a half recipe and it still made quite a bit. Oh, and I pureed it a bit with an immersion blender before adding the strawberries.
Yummy! I made this today with frozen mixed berried I had in the freezer, it was delicious! I had to substitute cranberry juice for apple as I was out, but otherwise made as described. I made this along with "Brandied Custard Crepe Filling" #323013 to go together in breakfast crepes, it was perfect!! I will be keeping this recipe, thanks for posting!
This was a hit with my kids and hubby...they all loved it. I used raspberries instead of blueberries because our grocery store didn't have any fresh blueberries, just the raspberries. I used 1 c. of sugar instead of the recommended 1/4-1/2 c. because we like sweet things! I used apple juice with this recipe. The dash of cinnamon I just poured some in eyeballing it because we all like cinnamon too, it went over very well. My oldest son said it was better than IHop so I guess I did alright with my substitutions... lol Thanks for sharing this recipe, I'm sure my family will be demanding it again. Excellent recipe!
